Book Review – Take Me With You by Nina G. Jones

Genres: Adult, Contemporary Romance Standalone/Series: Standalone Published on: October 15, 2016 Pages: 378 Source: Purchased Rating: 4.5 STARS Buy on Amazon Wow. What an emotional roller coaster I had been. This story had put me in a terrifying yet consuming world that I always crave in dark reads, although I had to take a break, catch my breath many times, to make sure I was ready to continue. It blew my mind within the first few pages and messed with my mind in a way that I had to countlessly rethink whether I wanted to finish it or not. What is the story about? It was a man named Sam who had terrifying needs to have control over others. He needed to release his needs by going to different houses, raping them and making them feel powerless, as a way to cope with his past. He had a completely negative […]

Favorite Series – The Consolation Duet by Corinne Michaels

This series is one of my favorites that I couldn’t recommend enough for those who love heartfelt, emotional reads. Each book in this series has to be read in order since they are not standalones. About Book 1: Liam wasn’t supposed to be my happily ever after. He wasn’t even on my radar. He was my husband’s best friend—forbidden. But my husband is dead and I’m alone. I ache for him and I reach for Liam. One night with Liam changed everything. Now I have to decide if I truly love him or if he’s just the consolation prize. What would you feel if you lost your husband, the love of your life while carrying his baby? Devastated. Broken. “My heart stops breathing and the world I live in ceases to exist.” “My sorrow turns to hatred. I hate him. I hate everyone in this moment. I […]

Book Review – On The Island by Tracey Garvis-Graves

Genres: Adult, Contemporary Romance Standalone/Series: Standalone Published on: June 7, 2012 Pages: 352 Source: Purchased Rating: 4.5 STARS Buy on Amazon Are you into forbidden love stories? This one is for you. I love stories that push the envelope, confront the traditional beliefs of what love should be. This story, in my opinion, reflects that. The story was about a 30-year-old woman, Anna, who was offered to tutor a 16-year-old boy, T.J. Callahan at his family summer rental at the Maldives. She accepted the job, and they en route to join T.J.’s family in the Maldives when the pilot of their seaplane suffered a fatal heart attack and crash-landed in the Indian Ocean. To survive they had to work together. Ok. I can imagine what you’re thinking right now. Wait, a 16-year-old boy? No, this is my hard limit. NO. Wait, as months and years passed by, the teenage boy was […]

Book Review – A Thousand Boy Kisses by Tillie Cole

Genres: Young Adult, Contemporary Romance Standalone/Series: Standalone Published on: March 15, 2016 Pages: 316 Source: Purchased Rating: 5 STARS Buy on Amazon I want to share one of my all time favorites, a Thousand Boy Kisses by Tillie Cole. This is one of my favorites in 2016. I’ve read this book since the day it was published but just being able to review it now. I can’t forget this book. This book had me ugly cries for hours after reading it. Since very few books have the power to make me sob, you can see how special this book is. This is a young adult book where the setting is in high school. So, the main characters are high schoolers. Wait, don’t make it fool you. I know, some of you may ask how could a teenage book make me very emotional. Guys, this one is not a regular […]

Book Review – Breathe (Colorado Mountain #4) by Kristen Ashley

Genres: Adult, Contemporary Romance Standalone/Series: Standalone Published on: December 11, 2012 Pages: 649 Source: Purchased Rating: 3.5 STARS Buy on Amazon Kristen Ashley did it again. This author can do no wrong in my eyes. When she creates something, it will always be amazing. I love this author. Her writing has magic that once you are in, there won’t be other way out, you will be captured by the story and the world she has created. “It was wild. Abandoned. Rough. Wet. Intense. Fiery. Thorough. Exquisite. Heart-pounding. Blood-singing. Soul-rocking. Life-altering. Luscious.” Chace Keaton is a broken, hot, badass, thirty five year old detective in Carnal. He had been through bad things in the past six years that ended with her wife being murdered and him feeling guilty. And there was a shy girl, Faye Goodknight, a twenty nine librarian who had never been in a relationship. She was waiting for the […]

Book Review – Kaleidoscope (Colorado Mountain #6) by Kristen Ashley

Genres: Adult, Contemporary Romance Standalone/Series: Standalone Published on: February 4, 2014 Pages: 406 Source: Purchased Rating: 3.5 STARS Buy on Amazon I love all Kristen Ashley’s books. Been a huge fan of her works for two years and read lots of her books. I couldn’t help but compare this one with the previous ones while reading. All of Kristen Ashley’s books is full of action, alpha-males and sweet, engaging, romantic moments that I LOVE. I was searching that special moment that would excite me and fly me to the moon. You know those special moments that keep you turning the pages. The excitement! Those special moments that make me addicted and keep reading without skipping. Unfortunately, I didn’t get that. Something was missing. I found myself struggle to finish this book. Don’t get me wrong. This is still a good book. There are some parts that I loved. I loved Deck. […]

Book Review – The Bronze Horseman Series by Paullina Simons

Genres: Adult, Historical Romance Standalone/Series: Series Published on: March 2009 (Book 1) Pages: 811 (book 1), 578 (Book 2), 755 (Book 3) Source: Purchased Rating: 5 STARS (All Time Favorite) Buy on Amazon:  The Bronze Horseman (Book 1) Tatiana and Alexander (Book 2) The Summer Garden (Book 3) I don’t remember when I first heard of this series. The background is The Soviet-German war in 1941 until 1999 where they have had to face another kind of war throughout the years. The story took me to the era that I’m not familiar, so after reading 2 pages I wasn’t sure I would finish the first book, let alone the whole series. The series has three books with more than 2000 pages a book. I usually read 1000 pages or less a book, so 2000 pages are a lot. It took me a while to finish it. “Alexander, were you […]
